N-Durance® Lavi Setters

Nitride Bonded Silicon Carbide Lavi Setters for the Firing of Sanitaryware

N-Durance® lavi setters provide a flat setting surface for the drop-in lavatory sinks used in the sanitaryware industry. These safe, flexible lavi setters are available in various shapes, each offering exceptional thermal shock and high oxidation resistance.

Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ kiln furniture systems are designed and constructed from advanced silicon carbide (SiC) materials. These materials are thinner, lighter, and significantly stronger than traditional kiln furniture, offering improved energy efficiencies in high-temperature applications.

  • Advanced silicon carbide construction
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Minimum mass
  • Maximum strength
  • Improved kiln capacity and flexibility
  • Reduced firing cycles

Product Use

Suitable for firing a diverse range of sanitary products.


The shape of the setter can be adapted to accommodate the product being fired.
